it is embarrassing to compared government funding for amtrak with u.s. government funding for domestic aviation and highway speed passenger >> to build and maintain one of the best highways systems in the world, we've spent $114 billion and built it over 45 years and today it would be $126 billion. con jex on our roads are at historic levels and by 2020 urban interstates will be at or over capacity. and anyone who has had the pleasure of flying recently they know the problems that plag our nation's airport ch airports, in fact, in spite of all this amtrak carries more riders from new york to boston than all other airlines put together. 50% of people that travel this distance. and between washington d.c. and new york city, amtrak carries twice as many passengers as all airlines come bind. today it carries 75% of inner city travel letters between new york and washington. amtrak has done all this with the threat of funding cuts and privatization especially of the profitable northeast corridor hanging over its head. we know that in other parts of the world privatization of hig

when we went out to search, we took the assets with to us ensure they were right there immediately so we could refact necessary. that is all i have as far as the details are concerned. i want to give you one more briefing, probably just before 6:00 try to get back up here for one more briefing. i'll take brief questions but there are certain things we cannot discuss at this time. sir? >> do we have anyone that survived it? >> one person was injured that suffered an injury and did survive. >> can you confirm a body in the house was adult male? >> i can't confirm. i know about the secondary scene. it didn't have time to get in detail about that. i'll try to do it for 6:00. >> i'm not confirming the identity of the shooter. we have a tentative identification. we are still working with that. not going to put it out there. he i'll identify the shooter at an appropriate time. but for our investigatortory purposes not appropriate to do that now. >> what is happening with hoboken, new jersey, the investigation there? >> it's part and parcel of what we do. i told you we will leave no stone
different way than any of us possibly could have imagined. quite frankly, as we stand here today, still can't imagine what traps pyred there. . >> evil visited this community today. and it's too early to speak of recovery. but each parent, each sibling each member of the family has to understand that connecticut, we're all in this together. we'll do whatever we can to overcome this event. we will get through it. but this is a terrible time for this community and for these famili families. our police personnel and others are doing the utmost to clear this situation as soon as possible and to return these children to their parents or these loved ones to their fellow loved ones as quickly as possible. and we'll work with all of the residents of this community and connecticut to make sure that we do, in fact, get through this. i was mayor of stanford on 9/11 when our state lost many of its citizens and i lost a number of my fellow citizens and friends. i never thought that in a public career that i would have to face these kinds of circumstances or that they would visit themselves upon this com
and that gunman is dead. as police have been telling us now, 20 children dead, 18 of them dead at the scene. and in addition to that, six adults are also dead, including the principal of the school. we understand that yet another adult was found dead at another location that police are not officially disclosing as of yet. and we are told that the mother of the suspected shooter, who is also dead at the scene, was also killed. she is a teacher and she was also killed at that school, according to our law enforcement sources. in addition to this, we are also told by our sources that another person is being questioned at this time but is not being called a suspect right now, and also that person is not being identified, wolf. so while the school is being called secure and safe by law enforcement authorities right now, they are -- they still have a lot of investigating to do. they have not officially released the name of the shooter or the other person being questioned or the names of any of the victims at this time. it's just an awful scene, and parents found out about this, wolf, when they rec
handguns, at least one rifle. and then also bob, this a.p. report that john just brought us up to date on, that the brother may be in custody. what have you learned? >> i keep asking that question, all of our folks here working the phones and we're asking the question of various sources, is there one shooter? is there more than one shooter? who's the second person that was detained at the scene? and i have to tell you, so far all of the information we're getting-- it always comes with a caveat-- but it all seems to suggest there was one shooter. the person who was detyned near the shooting scene was a man described as wearing b.d.u.s, khaki fatigues and working near the woods. i had a number of people tell me we don't think he's a player in this. that said, now the associated press says they're talking to the shooter's younger brother as john made the point this might just be due diligence by investigators to obviously want to talk to available family members and friends and close associates. so we can't say one way or the other and i think we need to be careful about not getting out too
scheduled a news conference for 1:00 eastern. joining us on the phone, msnbc analyst and former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, give us your read, your assessment, on this situation? >> well, we know that the shooter is dead. we don't know whether that is by law enforcement action when the first responding officers went in and confronted him or whether, as we saw in the portland, oregon, mall shooting this past week, whether the shooter actually shot himself committing suicide. we know that at least two handguns were found. you know, that takes us back to april 2007 when the shooter at virginia tech, in that case, who killed 32 and wounded 15, also had two handguns. what it does suggest, though, is that this individual went in there with carrying two handguns and perhaps other ammunition. he went in there apparently to confront someone. we're told that confrontation took place in the office of the school and may have spilled out from there. we're still trying to understand the number of victims and the level of injury. >> clint, you know, when we talk about these shootings, first off, t
up an expert telling us why these exchanges could spell trouble for doctors, hospitals and insurance companies. liz: but what drove the market in the data download? stocks erasing weekly gains with all three major indices ending the week lower with the s&p snapping a three week winning streak. consumer discretionary and utilities for the week's worst performing sectors. the euro surged to its highest level in seven months at the dollar dropped for the fifth day in a row versus the euro to go up another penny to $1.31 is pretty significant, language for the dollar 30, see you hitting the intraday high, u.s. consumer prices dropping for the first time in six months in november following 0.3%. the decline was driven by 7% plunge in the government's gasoline price. dave: a lot to talk about and we will get those details. dan is in the pits of the cme. jason fried telling us why european equities might be the best place to be. and brian is going to tell you how to play these markets if we go over the fiscal cliff. let's start with dan. i want to start with apple. what to you hear from fol
happening at sandy hook elementary school on dickerson drive. this is coming to us from one of our affiliates. police are reporting a number of injuries. the nature of the injuries at this point are unclear. we're going to be checking that throughout the morning. state police sources say that one person is dead. earlier reports of a second shooter. that has not been confirmed at this point. a few more reports, apparently the shooting was reported shortly after 9:40 a.m. this morning. police reported that a shooter was in the -- apparently in the main office. >> which is hard to tell with this image that we're looking at because that's sort of bird's-eye view of the school layout doesn't show where that is. we should mention that one of the tv stations that has been reporting on this was told by a witness that she saw two children, one with a bloody face and the other with what appeared to be a hand injury. again, that coming in to news 8, one of the local stations in the area. >> that falls in step with one of the reports that we're hearing, that a person in one of the rooms has, q

of breaking news overnight. including, you know, as the crisis in syria escalates, the u.s. is spending patriot missiles and troops to the syrian border with turkey. right now, martha raddatz will be here with more on that. >>> and barbara walters, bringing us her exclusive with the president and first lady. they rarely appear together for an interview. but they did for barbara. we'll hear their message, special message for robin. >>> let's get right to josh elliott for the pair of powerful earthquakes off the coast of california. >>> a powerful earthquaking rattling buildings and nerves in southern california. 6.3 magnitude off the coast. >> we're here in pasadena where they're watching this activity very closely. this was a pretty big shaker. 6.3 in magnitude. it occurred in the pacific ocean. lot of folks here in southern california felt it, though, it was a pretty good jolt. fortunately no reports of damage or injuries so far. back to you, josh. >> john, thank you. >>> people shaken by the quake twe tweeted it on twitter. >>> also this morning, new pressure on congress to approve a
: coverage continues on "happening now.". jenna: if you're just joining us a school shooting in connecticut. still uncon fermed details. this happened at sandy hook elementary school about hour and a half ago. according to wires and local reports we're getting some information there are several injuries at this elementary school this friday morning. a few details about this area. this place, this newtown, township, in connecticut is about 60 miles from new york city. it's a town of less than 30,000 people. so small community and a small elementary school at that we're trying to work on details what actually transpired this morning but according to the latest, we have unconfirmed report from the local paper, the courrant, there are two shooters being reported. one shooter is dead according to this report. another one is still on the loose. again very spotty reporting at this time. we're working very hard to get someone on the scene there. you're looking at a satellite shot of this elementary school. again a very developing scene there shortly after 9:40 this morning according to the local ne
secretary leon panetta announcing that the u.s. is sending patriot missiles and troops to turkey to deal with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly
was struck by the description earlier, simply reminding us of what we all know as we take the kids to school, schools are often made up long hallways with classroom doors. unfortunately, that's the entrance to the classroom. if you have a suspect that approaches that classroom door as perhaps was the case today there is just very little other than asking the children to perhaps dive under their desks. we do know that parents telling us earlier in our live coverage of this incident that the teachers were extraordinarily calm in taking these children out of the school. kids were told to cover their eyes. they were also told to grab a friend and leave all of your belongings behind. look at this. their faces say it all. and if you noticed which i certainly did early, none of them have their coats on as they walk out of that school and look at those adults in that frame, intent on getting those children to that neighboring fire house there in sandy hook. there's a volunteer fire house just adjacent to that school and that is where teachers were told to take the children just as soon as they could
in us. it is in the greatest honor in my life to serve these 24 years in this hallowed institution alongside my fellow senators and my staff and as the voice for wisconsin. all for that, i think you while one last time. and i yield the floor. >> negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff continued this afternoon when house speaker john boehner met with president obama at the white house for a little less than an hour. >> my inspiration was the idea that i wanted to explain how totalitarianism happens. we do know the story of the cold war. we know that the documents we have seen the archives and described relationships between roosevelt, stalin and truman and we know the main events from our point of view. what i wanted to do was show from a different angle, from the ground up, what did it feel like to be one of the people who were subjected to this system and how did people make choices in that system and how did they react? it's interesting that one of the things that has happened since 1989 is the regional used to call at eastern europe has become very differentiated. these cou
does this guy use? what time of ammunition did he use? did he target any of the children or the adults specifically? a lost times in these situations an individual will start out with one target and he will wine up if he has the appear in addition shooting several people we trying to find out if he targets one. somebody or something ignited this guy. either today or yesterday. it seems like someone ignited this guy yesterday because it seemed like it was a mapped shooting but when i talk to my sources he was ready. i am not sure if he had this planned out or was this a respond attendous event? those are the questions we are trying to find out right now. >> you know, his brother, ryan, who was originally identified as the shooter maybe because adam had something indicating he was ryan on him, but, that brother is now in police custody in new jersey. what are authorities trying to get out of him if he were not an accomplice, what are they trying to learn? >> it is not unusual for family members to be thought as being a person that committed an act when another family member did it. that
at the flag at the white house lowered to half staff to remember the victims and the families. here to give us some perspective on the shootings, rich marionos, the assistant director and special agent in charge of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and explosives. he is the lead investigator for control bum line shootings in 19 -- columbine shootings from 1999 and joins us in washington. rich, thank u for being here. this is a horrific investigation. first, it's tough to even deal with to start the investigation for experts who have been talking about this all day. they said it's tough to even do it. once you get in to it, what are they doing from the beginning to begin their looking in to this guy and starting the evidentiary gathering? >> guest: i never thought once again in my entire career i'd go through another incident similar to columbine. the entire bureau and the law enforcement members are just saddened and send our sympathies out to the families. we as an agency with atf and the partners are so commit to make sure that we come up with a motive and come up with every answer
was in a gym, and i heard a loud -- well, i heard, like, seven loud booms, and the gym teachers told us to go in the corner, so we all huddled, and i kept hearing these booming noises, and we all started -- well, we didn't scream. we started crying. so all the gym teachers told us to go into the office where no one could find us, so then a police officer came in and told us to run outside, so we did, and we came in the firehouse and waited for our parents. >> there were other eyewitnesss, other children also responding. >> is he with her, thank god, and they went into a corner, and they didn't move until they found out what happened and the principal was killed and some other people were shot, and i don't know anything else. >> susan paige and david gregory here with me in the studio as we watch these scenes unfold and we're waiting for law enforcement news conference. david, as the father of three children, three young children, you know that schools are now in a completings completely different zone preparing for these kinds of emergencies, and teaching children how to deal with it. >> that
